Skyway - Spring/Summer 2020

Environment: Rethinking European Aviation
The cover of Skyway issue 72
Environment conference 2020

Our latest Skyway magazine is now out. This time we look at aviation's impact on the environment and what we can do to minimise it.

In this 72nd issue, we heed warnings from industry leaders, explore what actions are taken by stakeholders and at a European level and how we help to envision the cleaner, smarter and more efficient aviation sector of tomorrow.

"Europe's aviation industry has a critical role to play in this process. For too long we have been seen as a major part of the problem, rather than an integral part of the solution..."

Eamonn Brennan Director General EUROCONTROL
